Time lapse of the super yacht, Ulysses, as it headed out of Honolulu Harbor around lunchtime today. As seen from the observation deck of Aloha Tower. This is the super yacht that was built for New Zealand’s richest person, Graeme Hart in 2016. It was just recently sold to Russian billionaire, Yuri Milner. It made headlines after it turned away from docking at Molokai last Friday after residents there protested their arrival. #nofilter #ulysses #superyacht #honoluluharbor

Our final Broadway show on our final night in NY 😢 I love that this story has been turned into a Broadway musical to share the events of how the people of Newfoundland opened up their hearts and homes to grounded air passengers on 9/11/01.  Swipe left to see the tags with names and notes from people all over the world who came to see the show! #ComeFromAway #what_i_saw_in_nyc #I❤️NY
